#1: Jo Scott's Age Author: RóisínLocation: Gaillimh, Eire PostPosted: Wed Apr 05, 2006 4:45 pm

I'm a bit confused. I'm reading Theodora at the moment, and it looks like Jo is chumming up with Con. But when she first came to the CS she was around the same age as Mary-Lou or Josette. So, does her age move around? Or does she just spend longer in Inter V/ VB than clever Josette, or slightly-older Mary-Lou?

Josette is a bit younger than Mary-Lou - she says in Three Go that they won't move her up because she's younger than the rest of the class. & Jo is a bit younger than Josette - can't remember the exact ages given in Kenya but Jo is slightly younger. She's still older than the triplets, but they ended up in a form (in New Mistress etc) where they were younger than any of the others. So I think her age stays fairly constant (amazingly enough!!).

I always felt Jo Scott was amazingly badly treated. She not only ended up in a class with people years younger - and there had been no indication that she was slow or stupid, then, after years of being Form Prefect etc, she just disappears - was she even a Prefect? She should have been Head Girl!

I agree, Lesley! I think demoting her like that while promoting the triplets was just an excuse to surround them with "suitable" friends.

I think in Kenya she was just 14, whereas Mary Lou was 15 that term. At this point the triplets would have been 11 so when they started in Inter V they were coming up for 13 and Jo was 15. Jo did say in Kenya that she was a plodder and only really good at I think it was needlework so that might be why she was often in a lower form. Might also account for why she wasn't a prefect - ran out of time as she would have been 18 by the time she finished in Va.

I think I recall Miss Annersley saying somewhere that it was out of the question to move Jo up, not sure why though!! Laughing
